                      ART II

Course Description:

Art II is a two-semester course designed for students who have successfully completed Art I.  Art II students shall further expand their knowledge of the elements of art and principles of design through the research, production, and criticism of visual art.  Students are expected to use a broad variety of media, techniques, processes, and tools to create original, complex compositions that reflect personal growth, solve visual art problems, and communicate ideas.  Students will critique artwork and reflect on the impact of art upon society as well as societal influences on art.
